I was sitting on the Fiction Picture Book judges committee, helped select the winner, and did I let you know what it was? No! I'm a total loser. Mid-February was waaaay busy for me.
Anyway, better late than never -- the Fiction Picture Book winner was How To Heal a Broken Wing, written and illustrated by Bob Graham. It's a lovely book, which tells its story with few words but excess grace. Worth tracking down, even seven weeks later.
